Crowns and Bridges
Living through your daily life with decayed, cracked, or missing teeth can be challenging and consuming. Day-to-day functions like eating and chewing can be complicated, along with speaking clearly and even smiling. Many patients might also feel uncomfortable with how a gap in their smiles might look to strangers or people in their lives.
At Centre Street Dental, we provide necessary dental services like dental crowns and bridges for patients in Casino, NSW and surrounding communities. We are there for patients who are interested in custom-fabricated restorations to bring back their smiles. Dr Annie Thompson and Dr Greg Normoyle bring together art and science in a harmonious balance to create high-quality, reliable dental crowns and bridges.
Teeth are created to be durable and endure tremendous biting force, but even the strongest substances are susceptible to erosion, tooth decay, teeth grinding, and poor oral habits.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns protect weakened and damaged teeth by covering the entire tooth, down to the gum line. The protected tooth can now easily bite down and chew without pain or fear of infection, further cracking, or any damage.
Dental crowns help strengthen, cover, and stabilise many different oral health problems, including:
- Cavity that is too large for a filling
- Chipped or fractured teeth
- Broken tooth
- Enamel erosion from grinding teeth
- After a root canal procedure
- The visible portion of a dental implant
- A stained tooth that is resistant to professional teeth whitening
Dental crowns typically take two to three weeks from start to finish, and many require two dental visits to our Casino dental practice. During our first dental appointment, our cosmetic dentist will prepare the tooth and construct a provisional crown. We will also take digital impressions to help make an accurate fit. Our dentists will place the provisional dental crown until the permanent crown is fabricated.
We craft our dental crowns to blend in seamlessly; no one will be able to tell you have a dental restoration.
Are You Missing One or More Teeth?
Tooth loss is not an uncommon oral health problem, but without being addressed, it can easily lead to further tooth loss. When there is a space in your smile, existing teeth tend to shift towards the gap. Every tooth fulfils a role and function; when one tooth goes missing, it often creates a lot of strain and pressure on the remaining teeth.
At Centre Street Dental, we offer tooth replacement options for patients who are interested in filling in gaps.
Dr Normoyle and Dr Thompson may recommend a dental bridge for one or multiple missing teeth. Bridges are secured to neighbouring teeth and close the gap with a dental crown to look natural.
Like a dental crown, bridges typically take three weeks and require at least two dental visits.
